The Bride Wore Dior Couture for Her Paris Engagement!

Can we just talk about this bride’s pink ombre dream dress? Because it’s pretty much everything. Inspired by Natalie Portman’s iconic Miss Dior gown, it’s a show-stopper made for a Parisian engagement shoot and a gorgeous bride like Ann to pull it off. Greg Finck made sure the dress (and of course, the couple) we’re perfectly captured and their wedding reveal is coming up later today!

A High-Fashion Dress for a Parisian Real Wedding!

When you get married in Paris, you better bring your fashion A-game, and that’s exactly what this real bride did. She customized her Junko Yoshioka gown by creating a high-low hemline and adding a statement bow in the back. And the result? Well, scroll below and see the dress (and the entire day!) captured by French Grey Photography for yourself.

Colors

From the couple… Josh and I secretly got married legally in the US before the Paris wedding. We got married at the fountain in Central Park and our 10-year-old pug dog was the best man. We drank champagne at Tavern on the Green and everything about that day was so filled with love. We both agreed that if all that our wedding ever was, was that day we would have been perfectly happy!
I think the fact that we were already married made our Paris ceremony less stressful.

We stuck really true to ourselves as a couple. We never let anyone else persuade our selections as a lot of times the stress from weddings is trying to please everyone. We wanted to have some French flair with a little bit of our modern New Yorker style mixed in. For the most part, I really love neutrals so a lot of our selections were black and white with pops of color here and there.

French Grey Events designed the bouquet… Kasia is so talented!! I sent her ideas but she really brought the look to life. It was really important to me to have peonies in the mix and I wanted the flowers to match my shoes. The table pieces were created by A Girl and Roses in Paris. Again, I sent her photos and she interpreted them really well! I wanted small scattered votives and vessels of really clean white flowers including garden roses, hydrangeas, and daisies.

Brian with French Grey Photography was our photographer. He is the husband to our officiant Kasia. They were the perfect duo for Josh and I. Brian knew all the best places to go that felt special and not so touristy. We lived in Brooklyn at the time so it was also important to capture a little sense of that Urban and modern photography. I saw Brian’s work on several websites and had to have him for our big day!

My dress was from Bridal Garden in NYC and the designer is Junko Yoshioka. I customized the dress by creating a high-low hemline and creating a huge bow in the back. The fabric was embossed with flowers and a gorgeous cream ombré. The shoes were the best part of my look! I bought them before the dress and altered my dress to highlight my Christian Louboutin lilac suede 100 mm beauties! I am only 5’1″ so the sky is the limit for me and footwear.

Josh had a suit custom made in NYC at Trunk Club in the Plaza Hotel. It was important for him to feel like himself and not wear a tux. I went with him to all of his appointments because I am his built-in personal stylist. On the wedding day, we decided to do a first look and when I saw him standing there all done up, I couldn’t help but to hold back tears and felt so lucky he was going to be my husband.
